RE: Heads Up!

The headshell is awfully heavy at 15-grams. This means that tonearm effective mass will be at least 19 or 20-grams, which equates to a high-mass tonearm. Of course, the silver cartridge wires are probably worth $25 by themselves so you could discard the headshell and use them on a lower mass headshell. The cartridge mounting bolts and nuts also appear to be low mass aluminum hardware. I think I would keep the wires and mounting hardware, and discard the headshell. ;-)
